The Commissioner for Finance in the State of Osun, Mr Bola Oyebamiji, has reiterated the commitment of the Adegboyega Oyetola’s administration to reposition the economy of the State through Commerce.
Oyebamiji said the present administration is looking to explore all possibilities in commerce, agriculture and other sectors to boost the state’s economy and provide jobs for the youths.
Oyebamiji, while fielding questions from newsmen at an empowerment programme in Gbongan, organized by Hon. Taiwo Oluga who represents Irewole/Ayedaade/Isokan Federal Constituency at the Federal House of Representatives, said part of the commitments of the All Progressives Congress (APC) led Government both at state and federal level is to empower small and medium scale buisness owners and through them stimulate the economy of the State.
The Commissioner while imploring the beneficiaries to use the items they got judiciously, commended APC federal lawmakers for remembering their Constituents who voted them into power.
“I congratulate my sister, Hon. Taiwo Oluga for this feat. This is in line with the efforts of the state government to boost the state’s economy through commerce. The aim is to use small and medium scale buisness enterprises to galvanize our economy.
“We believe in our small and medium scale buisness, their contribution to the growth of any economy at their micro level can never be overemphasized especially in the manner in which they carry out their daily buisness transactions”, he noted.
The equipments distributed include: 75 motorcycles, 45 deep freezers, 15 hair dryers, 18 grinding machines and 15 sewing machines as well as cheques of N500,000 given to four market women heads (Iyalojas) each.
